Here is a full FFVL / SHV review of reserves from their 2009 tests, measuring weight, opening times, sink rates etc.

The Apco Mayday's are highlighted but it is an unbiased comparison.

I baulked about the price of a new reserve that (hopefully) might never see the light of day, and tried to convince myself that a cheap secondhand one with a poorer sink rate was better than nothing ....... but ..... then decided to just pay the price for peace of mind. :)
